,,WHAT IF YOU COULD WIN 10 DOLLARS ON YOUR NEXT GAME OF DOTA 2 ?”
A group of Swedish boys, passionate about video games launched Epulze in the summer of 2015, a website that allows users to play DOTA 2 for real cash. I was hoping that one day a platform like Epulze will emerge because there are so many players and teams out there that never had the opportunity to shine in tournaments or championships. Good players can earn money and have fun playing DOTA at the same time.
Live Streaming on Twitch or HitBOX TV can also be a good source of income if you can join the affiliate program. In order to become an affiliate with Twitch you need to have a schedule in which you will be streaming at least 3 times a week and the average concurrent viewership of 500+ (not just a one-time peak). In order to build-up and maintain your audience, you have to interact with the viewers, promote your stream using social media and the video quality needs fulfill the viewers expectations. A good internet connection is required, an upload speed of 10 to 20 Mbps will do just fine. The equipment will be the most challenging part. You will need a strong computer, a microphone, video camera + a good source of light and two monitors to be able to see the chat without having to ALT Tab. There are many more to add to the list but these are the most important.
Players who are willing to play on Epulze must be at least 18 years old. According to their Terms and Conditions: ,, Epulze’s challenge and tournament services are categorized as games of skill and the cash or prize winnings of User or group of Users are the result of skill, not chance.” I have submitted my beta key and received $4 for free in my account wallet.
